Happy Birthday to Me
Last night our "Loose Threads" art group met and we celebrated my 52nd birthday! What fun! Deo made a fantastic cake (need that recipe!) and this doll. Isn't it fantastic. The rest of my friends made me my own "snake" quilt. It is 6 inches wide and has five panels that are 52 inches (how old I am). That's 260 inches of love. Thanks Grace, Barbara, Barbara, Adena, and Sara. There is nothing better than celebrating your birthday with friends. Though I have to say I had a great birthday with my family on Sunday.
I took a class today on how to use my Bernina 820. We had fun and boy did I learn a lot. I can hardly wait to use Razzle Dazzle for some bobbin work. It was easier than I thought with this machine. I was quilting on my 730 yesterday while my machine was being updated, and I really missed the space and light on the 820. If you have never seen one or tried one out, you must. It's fantastic!
I have some ideas on the quilting of my Bella Bella quilt I posted last time. Thanks for all the help. I hope to show it to you when I am done. It is now named "Knights of the Round Table". Thanks Serena!
Back to the sewing machine. Keep on quilting!
